“As my youngest child finishes college, I’ve been thinking about an adult’s life stages. In the first, you’re working hard, making your way. In the second, you’re advancing, becoming part of a community, maybe raising children.
In the third stage, you find that when you’re serving others, you also serve yourself. You get satisfaction from seeing others heal themselves.
That’s why I started a fund at The Trust, which can help me make sure my giving makes a real difference.” — Carlos Lu
